It’s back-to-school time, and we’ve been getting questions about humidifiers for dorm rooms, and our answer most often is the Venta Airwasher. It won’t be right for everyone, of course, but it’s combination of excellent performance and easy maintenance makes it pretty much the humidifier of choice for the student.
Easy maintenance is the most important point for students and dorms. The Venta Airwasher uses a water treatment solution to prevent lime scale buildup and odors. Just add a capful when you add more water. There are no filters, sticks or bulbs to clean or replace. All you need to do is wipe the unit out with a damp sponge every couple of weeks.
Venta Airwashers use a simple, effective design and are ruggedly built. Together, that gives you a durable humidifier, one with a 10-year warranty.
The Venta Airwasher also doubles as an air purifier. It doesn’t provide HEPA filtration, so won’t replace a standalone air purifier for those with severe allergies or indoor air pollution problems. But it will draw in and filter out dust, pollen, smoke and other airborne particles.
The Venta Airwasher LW14, for rooms up to 180 sq. ft., will be right for most dorms rooms. For larger areas, the Venta Airwasher LW24 handles rooms up to 360 sq. ft. Their small size (both are smaller than a 12-inch cube) mean they will fit virtually anywhere in small student living spaces.
